Having specialised in this area of work, he has built up a niche practice, which he finds interesting and challenging, at the same time as giving him the opportunity to help people with difficult problems, which arise when they have been let down by a previous Solicitor or other lawyer.

Matthew Wilkinson assisted me in a professional negligence claim against another firm of solicitors, who had previously represented me with a medical negligence claim. Their practice had left me with a feeling of distrust, fear and frustration. Matthew’s service however restored my faith in the legal profession. Throughout the claim, he guided me, spoke honestly and “said it how he saw it”. Matthew put me at the centre of the claim. As I suffered ill health and found it difficult to get to his office, he visited me at home. Matthew kept me informed at every stage of the claim. The claim was a very large one, which meant representation at a very high court. Counsel that was instructed on my behalf was also excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend Matthew Wilkinson to anyone seeking redress in a professional negligence claim. The professional service you receive in a very supportive manner is a highly qualitative one.
Mathew Wilkinson is a trustworthy person who has provided excellent service and isn’t just in it for the money. He genuinely considers the clients best interest and gives the right advice. I would recommend Mathew Wilkinson to all my contacts.
We were at our lowest point when we discovered this firm – just in time! Integrity and honesty are in abundance here. Down to earth, practical and the best advice in the world. The service was exceptional. We cannot recommend Matthew Wilkinson enough.
After a really bad experience with solicitors, I reached out to Matthew Wilkinson. He was kind and courteous. He kept me informed and advised me all the way through, he truly was my advocate throughout the process. He got me a great settlement and finally I felt, thanks to him, that I had justice. I can’t thank him enough for laying my ghosts to rest.
Many thanks for your professional efficient service. I was particularly impressed with the way my case was dealt with in a personal compassionate manner and was always kept informed of progress of the case on a regular basis. I was very pleased at any time to be able to contact Matthew personally by phone with any concerns or questions I may have had regarding my case. Once again thanks for an excellent service and positive outcome, I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone who requires this type of service.
I was very satisfied with your service! Thank you very much for what you have done for me, I would recommend you to anyone without a doubt!
When acting on my behalf I found your services to be of a very high and professional standard with excellent expertise in supporting me to successfully win my case.
Everything was professionaly completed with careful attention to detail. At all stages MW made us feel comfortable and confident.
Thank You Mr Large and Mr Wilkinson and all staff for all the help and support.
